I might have shared this last year, but it’s one of my favorite strategies to use. I’ve only used it in history, but can see it used EVERYWHERE! 🙂
I’ve used it as a before strategy as a way of reviewing material from the previous day. It gets the kids moving, and they are very engaged!
1. Every student needs an index card.
2. They have to move around the room and interview other students and write the information in the index cards.
3. Return to their seats. Let some of them share.
We started studying the Homestead Act. They had to interview 3 students and collect 3 facts about the act.
I give them a time limit- like maybe 3-5 minutes.
They’re really not as loud as you would think they might be! 🙂
Here’s my class in action today.
What’s a favorite strategy you use?
